Reports, correspondence and program materials concerning the YWCA of the U.S.A.'s programs addressing hunger, poverty, consumer education and international trade. As an organization striving to meet the needs of a diverse group of women and girls, the YWCA of the U.S.A.'s programs on hunger and poverty use education, collaboration and practical programming to address the issues and increase public awareness. Their work against hunger include participation in the White House Conference on Food, Nutrition and Health, workshops, education pamphlets, studies and a public affairs platform. Documents concerning the poverty programs and initiatives include a series of articles from YWCA Magazine concerning local and national efforts, program reports and special addresses on poverty. The report "Consumer Education and Consumer Protection" by the YWCA of Los Angeles' public affairs department is a summary report of the economic dangers and pitfalls that consumers may face. International trade is addressed in the text of a speech by Mary Dublin Keyserling titled "Trade Policies for the future." Additional documents include a proposed international trade policy, ordering information for a multimedia presentation on consumer education and statements from the YWCA of the U.S.A.'s public affairs departments concerning consumer safety.
